WELCOME TO THE GUN SHOW!
After a complete lower-body beat-down on Sunday, it was time for some upper body focused work on Tuesday, mixed in with a little bit of fun.
That’s right, we’re talking about working your bi’s, your guns, your pythons, pipes, jacks, & 22’s.
Strength: 7 x 3-5 Strict Chin-Ups
UP = Weight (dumbells between the feet or legs, or plates hung from a belt)
DOWN = Band Assisted & Negatives
To scale down, remember that you should attempt as many reps without assistance as you can. This includes single or individual reps; e.g., if by your 4th set of 7, you can only manage 1 strict chin-up, then knock that single out before finishing off the set with band assisted or negative chin-ups. This includes failed attempts at the first rep! Don’t simply jump straight to the scaled options.
Burn-Out #1: 2 x 1min AMRAP Military Press from the Floor
With an unloaded bar, attempt as many reps as possible in 1min of strict press while seated on the floor. HINT: you’re really gonna need your core for this.
Burn Out #2: 1min AMRAP Barbell Bicep Curls
With an unloaded bar, attempt as many reps as possible in 1min of bicep curls. Requirements: no swingings, no leaning, and full range of motion.
Sometimes, you just gotta have fun with things. Now go enjoy the fact that your arms won’t straighten out until we pick up something heavy on Thursday.
